    • Twins' Kennys Vargas: Launches two-run bomb in loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Vargas went 2-for-2 with a double, a two-run home run and two walks during Sunday's loss to Kansas City. Vargas has been playing sparingly, and while Sunday's blast could earn him a few more at-bats moving forward, he's not in the lineup enough to move the needle in most fantasy settings. His .249/.311/.438 slash line shouldn't instill much confidence, either.

    • Twins' Kennys Vargas: Out of Saturday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Vargas is out of Saturday's lineup against the Royals, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. He has been the primary DH since getting recalled, hitting .235/.333/.353 with one home run and 10 strikeouts in 34 at-bats over that span. Mitch Garver gets the start at DH, hitting sixth, against lefty Onelki Garcia.

    • Twins' Kennys Vargas: Draws third straight start
      By RotoWire Staff

      Vargas will serve as the Twins' designated hitter and bat seventh Tuesday against the White Sox. Injuries to Robbie Grossman (thumb) and Miguel Sano (shin) have left Vargas the top option on the depth chart at DH. Vargas will draw his third consecutive start Tuesday after going 3-for-9 with two RBI over the past two contests.

    • Twins' Kennys Vargas: Goes yard Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Vargas went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the White Sox. As has been his habit this season, Vargas flashed his power quickly after his latest promotion from Triple-A Rochester. While his nine homers and 31 RBI in 54 big-league games are solid, his .245 batting average and .736 OPS point to why he hasn't been able to hang onto a regular spot in the Twins' lineup. With Miguel Sano (shin) out for another week or so, however, expect Vargas to see plenty of at-bats through the rest of August as the team looks to replace their young slugger's thump.

    • Twins' Kennys Vargas: Recalled from Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Vargas was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Vargas will assume the active roster spot of Miguel Sano (shin), who landed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday. The 27-year-old Vargas has reached base at just a .289 clip over 190 plate appearances with the big club this season, but he's often provided an impact when he's been able to make contact, as evidenced by the eight home runs and nine doubles on his ledger. Vargas is expected to pick up semi-regular at-bats at designated hitter or first base while Sano remains sidelined.
